Yesterday I gave up on You Tube. The other day I had posted on here about my clip from Denver's then KFEL now KWGN being yanked over copyrights..well today I heard from KWGN they know nothing and through email I found out that the person who "claimed copyright" had actually works for the Super 8 Motel chain in Cincinatti who had nothing to do of course with KWGN.

In short ANYONE can get ANYONE banned from You Tube and with Scott Fybush from FOX Rochester, NY out on the lookout over copyrights and to report back to You Tube..I doubt I would be the only one to have it's account suspended.

Ya Cathy, that's why I don't put things up on Youtube, to much of a hassle, people are just going to make trouble quite truthfully for two reasons. One, because they can, and two because they can remain anonymous through out the whole process, it's just to much of a burden to put a whole bunch of good stuff up and then have them taken down due to a bogus claim.

The "anonymous" angle, in a perfect world if someone sees something on You Tube or elsehwere that is a copyright violation then he/she BEFORE they contact You Tube should contact privately the person who had uploaded the clip and ask that person to remove it. If the uploader refuses..THEN contact You Tube. Unfortunately TV & radio stations, movie studios & networks and even celebrities are NOT allowed to have any contact with the average John & Jane for legal reasons so therfor they must go straight to You Tube.

The only reason KWGN had spoke to me about this is because I know some of their staff who in turned checked it out for me, alas had I NOT know anyone there, KWGN would never had discussed this with me.

This sort of thing reminds me of the various forums that allow people to say anything even if its illegal and slanderous, even though those postings can be traced back to the person who had posted the stuff in the first place..easier just to contact the website and have the post remove rather that taking that extra step.

Yeah, I got suspended too. Don't understand the beef. It was over a Chesterfield commercial and the complaint came from Tradmark LLC, whoever that is. Don't understand the beef. I wasn't selling the video. Just put it up there for historical reference. Also had a Marlboro commercial complaint and Youtube yanks you after 3 complaints with no recourse. Oh well, Google owns the world.
